While I feel bad for the poor Chinese lady, I gotta score one for the snake.  But the biggest a-hole by far is the Thai mental giant that obviously doesn't have enough knowledge of handling this animal, nor does he have any common sense to see the potential for a bad event.  Actually, they're all freekin idiots (except the snake).
